Shina Peller, a member of the House of Representatives, has reacted to reports making the rounds that he is against the choice of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as a presidential candidate in the 2023 general elections.

Reports had quoted Peller as saying Tinubu should not be appointed as Nigeria’ president in 2023.

However, the lawmaker in a post on his social media pages said he was misquoted, clarifying that he meant no one should force any presidential candidate on Nigerians in the 2023 election.

His post read: “My attention has been drawn to the news on blogs quoting me saying that the APC Leader “Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu should not be anointed as President.”

“Sadly, it’s a misrepresentation of what I said. To set the record straight, I have nothing against our leader nor his presidential ambition. I have enjoyed a father and son relationship with him for years, and it remains so.

“I commented on the age-long political style of forcing candidates down the throat of the citizens, without thinking of the principles of equity, equality and fairness.

“I stated that the rest of the world is leaving Nigeria behind in terms of rapid growth and development.”

Peller stressed that the next general election in 2023 is a reset period for Nigeria, hence “we must get it right!”

He noted that whatever collective decision Nigerians make must be based on promoting peace and unity.
